You will be researching weather conditions with a partner for your chosen city in Australia. You need to learn how to find out:

- expected rainfall
- how to find the average temperatures or weather for this time of year in your place.
Explore these weather sites and have fun working out what weather other people are experiencing just because they are in a different place, with a different climate. We will be comparing these later on. 😎
